The "Shaw House" lies on a narrow plot facing directly onto English Bay in Vancouver. From a slightly raised position one has a breathtaking view out over the bay and of the skyline of the Canadian metropolis.

Architecturally, the Valley Knudsen Garden Residence is a very interesting building. Most middle class homes of the Victorian period were done in varying combinations of the Eastlake or Queen Anne styles. The choice of this Second Empire with a French Mansard styled roof for this working-middle class home was rather unusual for the West coast
